The innkeepers have also hit it hard this year when it comes to non-alcoholic drinks. The Limo-Maß costs 10.35 euros on average – with some big differences. For example, a liter of soda can be had for EUR 7.40 in the Ochsenbraterei, while it costs EUR 11.30 in the Armbrustschützen marquee.
There are also big differences in the liter of water: the “cheapest” water is available in the Fischer-Vroni, in the Oktoberfest tavern by Käfer and in the Schottenhamel-Festhalle (9 euros each). In the wine tent you have to dig a little deeper into your pocket: a whopping 13.20 euros are due for the Wasser-Maß!
The city emphasizes that as the organizer of the Wiesn, it is not responsible for the drink prices at the Oktoberfest. However, she checks the prices quoted by the restaurateurs “for their appropriateness”.
This is how the Wiesn landlords explain the expensive beer prices at Oktoberfest 2022
The landlords cite high inflation, increased personnel costs, and massively increased energy prices as reasons for the jump in prices. Additionally, material and craftsman costs in the area of tent construction are also a facor.
“It’s good that the sound limit of 14 euros has not been broken,” said director Clemens Baumgärtner (CSU). “Nevertheless, the beer prices are pretty high. In the future, we’ll have to make sure that the Oktoberfest remains affordable.”
